The overall aim of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Special Interest Group is to promote and facilitate teaching and research in clinical oncology and related professions. The strength of the multidisciplinary ethos is seen in the scientific meetings organised which contribute to the educational needs of a diverse workforce, from trainees to qualified experienced personnel. Within the BIR the group advises the Council on matters relating to radiotherapy and oncology and responds and advises on documents from other bodies.
Everyone is welcome to join the BIR Oncology and Radiotherapy SIG including clinicians, physicists, radiographers, dosimetrists and oncology nurses. Simply join online here.
